I have my new FI8904W setup and working great over the internet and with my iPhone. It will motion detect and upload a file to a folder on my home pc but I cant seem to get emails. I have setup email and even run the test which sends a test email successfully but the camera will not send emails when it detects motion even though the alarm on email is checked in setup. I have called my ISP and they indicate its nothing on their end. Since I can actually send a test email Im assuming its correctly configured. What am I missing?

Thanks

Probably have an old firmware version. Contact Foscam and see if they can help you. They'll probably send you new firmware. I had mine in two different houses, each with a different ISP (Verizon and AT&T) and they emailed fine.

I have the lastes firmware.

Device ID 00606E8365E0
Device Firmware Version 11.15.1.46
Device Embeded Web UI Version 2.4.9.12


Started to dowload it from the Foscam.us site and its the same thats on their site.

My ISP requires that I use SMTP authentication. The weird thing is, it has sent me mails since I did the original post. It will not do it all the time and usually only does it once a day. Do I have to setup scheduling or what?

Sadly I have the same problem.

It works when I send a test mail, but there is NEVER an email
when I try to activate the motion dection. It simply doesnt work
at all.

Its a clear bug in the cam firmware.

Waiting for Foscam to fix it some day
